Katahdin, Polled Dorset , Cormo & Coopworth sheep
Current Stud Rams
Katahdin - enrolled in NSIP
The Katahdins were originally purchased to produce registered replacement stock and to serve as working stock for the training of young Border Collies. They proved to be prolific, highly productive, efficient, and excellent mothers, earning their place as a foundation enterprise on the farm. The breed is ideally suited as the basis for commercial flocks and flocks where no shearing is desired.
Polled Dorset - enrolled in NSIP
The Polled Dorset ewes are maintained as registered purebreds to maintain a maternal breed with the genetics for non-seasonal or accelerated lambing with the emphasis on maternal traits and growth rate.
Polled Dorset x Ile de France ewes produce 25% Ile de France lambs which are excellent for commercial market lamb production.
